The format of the book made it easy to read. I would love to memorise the book, but I can't so instead when I need to look something up, I just search for the grey boxes where questions are answered, food ideas are given and summaries are provided.
There's alot of information, but the format helps break this up.
This book consolidates a lot of information published in magazines into one place, in a readable, unbiased, practical fashion. It is fairly up-to-date and is based on scientific fact not, rumours spread by one exercising hard core nutcase to a fatter than should be newbie!
My only complaint that this book is not big enough, as I'm still hungry for more information. But that is more a reflection of my enthusiasm for this book.
This is a great book for those who want to learn more about nutrition. I guess it is not so suitable for the already very knowledgable, but then at the price it is, it is a lot cheaper and more readable than those huge volumes for those that want to spend 3 years at uni studying it.
I bought this with a hope of finding out more about how the body works during excercise and the part that food plays in that function and it hasnt disappointed me. Ive learnt exactly what I wanted to and more. Theres parts for working out your daily calorie intake and all those sorts of things.
This isnt a basic 'basic' book but I wouldnt say you need a science degree to understand it at all - I think it does all the explaining it needs to. Depending on your reading style and intake, and given the content you may want to read this a couple of times. I found I picked up the parts that interested me most first time round but to get a complete clear understanding of some parts that I might need another read through - but thats just me - we're all different hey!
Overall very good if your a fitness enthusiast and want to get into it further and have an actual understanding of how we work when excercising and the role food plays in it.
